Funded by an NIH-NINR T32 Institutional Training Grant, the overarching premise of the Reducing Health Disparities Through Informatics (RHeaDI) training program is that informatics infrastructure, processes, and applications are essential components of a system to facilitate evidence-based practice, to reduce health disparities, and to promote patient and public safety. RHeaDI supports 3 pre-doctoral and 2 post-doctoral trainee positions.
Funded by an NIH-NINR T32 Institutional Training Grant, the Training in Interdisciplinary Research to Prevent Infections (TIRI) program is designed to train biomedical researchers from a variety of fields to conduct interdisciplinary research with a focus on infection prevention in clinical, institutional and community settings. TIRI funds 2 pre-doctoral and 2 post-doctoral trainee positions.
Prompted by the growing complexity of health problems in underserved minority populations, TRANSIT’s goal is to transform the Columbia University School of Nursing PhD program to produce expert nurse scholars to lead interdisciplinary and translational research in the underserved urban communities.
Funded by an NIH-NINR T32 Institutional Training Grant, the Comparative and Cost-Effectiveness Research Training for Nurse Scientists (CER2) program provides an opportunity to train nurse scientists in this important field. The program builds upon the complementary strengths of CUSON’s faculty with expertise in mentoring pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students in CER2 methods, their research foci on high-risk, underserved populations, as well as the robust infrastructure of the Columbia University Medical Center in CER2 methods. CER2 supports 2 pre-doctoral and 1 post-doctoral trainee positions.
